For US MBA programs, tuition will rarely be less for international students than it is for domestics.

Do you have an idea of what your budget actually is?

And what do you mean by an "easy" application process?

You might want to check out some of the state schools - CSU Long Beach or CSU San Bernardino, for instance. Maybe SJSU, which is not in San Francisco per se but in the Bay Area generally.

These will cost less than other schools, and they certainly won't be as competitive as Haas, Stanford, UCLA, etc.

Razors Edge is right that no US MBA programs have lower tuitions for international students; however, many tier 2 - 3 schools (and lower) will offer financial help -- sometimes in the way of a flat-out scholarhip, sometimes by offering a teaching assistant position.

In that case, you need to analyze what the ROI will be from one of those lower-tiered schools. If you've got a sweet job offer waiting for you back in your home country and can absorb the costs, then 1) it's an easier decision and 2) be sure to mention that, even indirectly, in your application, since "Can they afford us?" is a primary concern for US admissions officers.

Otherwise though, realize that the sorts of employers that have high-paying jobs / easier access to visa sponsorship don't tend to recruit at tier 3 (or below) schools.

Also, keep in mind that in addition to tuition, you'll need to pony up several expenses right away, e.g. to rent an apartment. Many international students are shocked when a landlord asks for 3 months' rent ("first, last, and deposit") up-front....but their TA teaching check is still a month+ away.

(I say this as an admissions consultant who has great success in getting international applicants in, but then I get super-stressed out for the ones that may not have access to, say, $5,000 needed to fly to the US and rent an apartment!)
